There are a few solid egg substitutes in the vegan world. But, mastering a tasty vegan omelette has been an adventure. We landed on chickpea flour because it closely resembles the texture and look of an actual egg omelette. It took many iterations to get the right flavor combination. We are so happy to report that we have finally nailed it! Not only is it good for this one serving, it totally works to double or triple it as well! Lastly, the best part of it all is we can eat this “egg” omelette everyday of the week and not worry about cholesterol levels.
The measurements and recipe specifics can be found in the vegan recipe card below.
Tasty Vegan Omelette Ingredients
Pantry Spices: salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, turmeric, basil. If you have fresh basil, that would work nicely as well.
The Good Stuff: chickpea (garbanzo bean) flour, onion
The Other Stuff: avocado oil, oat milk. Coconut milk works well too if you don’t have oat milk.
Dice the onion
In a mixing bowl, mix the pantry spices together with the chickpea flour. Remove clumps. Then add in the oat milk and mix together well.
Get Cooking & Enjoy
In a medium sized pan, heat the avocado oil.
Add the diced onion and cook until slightly browned. This crispiness brings nice texture and flavor into the final product.
Add the omelette mixture in. Stir around and then flatten down into a shape of the omelette.
Let cook for 2 minutes, then flip. Flatten with the back side of the spatula to ensure it’s cooking all the way through. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until it’s thick and formed.
Now, remember that you are still eating chickpea flour and not egg so it will NOT taste like your typical omelette. But, with this spice combination and ingredient consistency it’s pretty darn close. The crispiness and flavors is just so good, we usually whip up multiple batches!
